Harold John "Hal" Daub, Jr. (born April 23, 1941, in Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina) is a politician and lawyer affiliated with the Republican Party. Daub served in the House of Representatives from 1981 to 1989, representing the 2nd congressional district of Nebraska, and from 1995 to 2001 was mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. Daub rejoined Blackwell Sanders Peper Martin LLP (now Husch Blackwell Sanders) in 2005, where he currently serves as partner.

Daub grew up in North Omaha, and graduated from Benson High School. He received his B.S. from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri in 1963, and his J.D. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska in 1966. He served in the United States Army as an infantry captain from 1966 to 1968. After serving four terms in the House of Representatives, he ran for the Senate in 1988, where he lost in the primary; and in 1990, where he was defeated by Democratic incumbent J. James Exon by a 59%-41% margin. In 2007, Daub briefly ran for the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Chuck Hagel; he exited the race to offer an early endorsement to former Nebraska governor and USDA secretary and current Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns.[1]

On November 10, 2008, Daub announced he was running for Mayor of Omaha. On April 7, 2009, Daub won the most votes in the mayoral primary[2]. On May 12, 2009, he lost to Democrat Jim Suttle in the race for mayor with unofficial final results of 48.7 % to 50.7% [3]. The same election also saw the Republicans lose control of the City Council to the Democrats.

He recently concluded five years of service on the board of the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority (MECA).
